I practise as consulting relationship geek with individuals – and pairs or small groups – who want to look at their relationships with themselves, with other people, with their work, and/or with the wider world. I particularly work with writers and other creatives, therapists and other practitioners, and GSRD or LGBTQ+ activists, academics, and organisers.
This consulting generally takes place with people who’ve come across my writing, found it helpful, and feel I have something to offer them on a specific issue. While I draw on my therapy training, as well as my academic and activist experience, this is usually shorter term – or less frequent – than therapy, and has a more peer-to-peer support or mentoring feel to it.
These are the kinds of issues that I work with in this way:
I mostly see people for this work for one-hour sessions on Wednesday afternoons in central London or over Skype. Sometimes it takes the form of a one-off session to direct you to relevant resources and other sources of support. Other times it might involve a few weekly sessions, or once a month for a few months.
I can’t engage in personal correspondence about individual issues, but hopefully you will find the posts, links and resources on this website and megjohnandjustin.com useful. There are online groups and workshop-based events for many gender, sexuality, and relationship diverse communities which can be great places to get support and advice. An internet search should suggest groups in your local area or online spaces where you can chat to likeminded people. If you are looking for therapy then Pink Therapy is an excellent resource to search for a good therapist with relevant expertise.
